I do like a good curry, and this came with the most exquisite curry paste. Homemade with citrusy notes. Good local fare done with a big dollop of deliciousness. And they picked us up and returned us to our hotel. Can’t fault the experience.

Produce is clearly sourced from their most ideal locations. Largest scallops I ever had. Beautiful mussels. NZ steak. My partner had US ribs. Host, Gordie, was amazing. Transfers from and to our resort; no problem at all.

This was one of our first meals in Rarotonga. As we arrived on Easter weekend, not many restaurants were open so we chose this one based on the ability to get picked up and dropped off at our villa. The lady who picked us up...More

A small intimate restaurant. The relaxed atmosphere, local art, beautiful gardens combined with excellent service give it a special ambiance for all diners. European food with island flair, Coeliac Friendly, gluten free and vegetarian options along with a children's menu and free transfers by arrangement make Kikau Hut special. We are wheelchair accessible also.
